Hello my horsey pals.

What have you all been up to in recent months? Did you buy lasts months National horsemart (November)? Apparently my owner did a write up on reflective gear that was tested on myself. I was greeted one day down the stables with this bright pink rug, noseband cover and leg wraps. It was seriously gay - I felt so camp in it. However, on the plus side it attracted every ones attention! Wow the ladies loved it.

I will be out and about over the winter season so you may see me and my naughty antics at a show near you!

Buy the most recent National horsemart now - it has some great horsey products in there, so get scribbling on your father Christmas wish list!

I have asked for: a Rhinegold New Zealand rug, new travel boots, lots of treats, new owner (not sure that will be possible), filly/ mare calendar and so much more!

Good afternoon,

How are my fellows from the equine world? Can't believe I am being dragged out my stable at like 4am in the morning, plaited up and then off for cubbing meet at 6am - not fair. You don't look like me without my beauty sleep! What is my owner expecting? It was jolly good fun, managed to push another horse in the ditch. Well he was refusing to budge and I wanted to clear it, as soon as I got hold of the bit that was it. Isn't it about who can run the fastest?

Anyone been unfortunate to already have got there first clip? So far I have been enabled to keep my coat -phew, my armpits are always so ticklish and end up getting nicked due to me moving.

Come on then tell me what you have been up to? It has been ages since anyone has replied to me :(

Breakdowns spiralling out of control?
I read an article the other day on recovering horses and horse transport off from motorways. I can not believe the cost incurred. Apparently you are looking at 1. Disrupting the motorways for hours (if unluckly) 2. Incurring a massive bill if you do not have cover - £1200. I think the moral of this story is to take out cover. These prices vary from £67/ annum. The more expensive companies will arrange vets if required, transport horses home and put you up for the night if miles from home. Your horsebox insurance company could advise you on this.

Derby Meeting 29th June - 2nd July. So come on then, who is attending this year? Is anyone competeing in it? Let us know, if your competing then best of luck. Come at visit the team in our big red bus (by the Derby bank). We will be attending every day. Purchase this weeks National Horsemart weekly and recieve entry for 2 adults on Thursday or Friday - bargain at £1.95 + we also have 1000's of horses for sale.

Good afternoon. Well it is now officially spring time. I am looking forward to the weekend when the clocks change and I can once again hack out after a hard day at work. Some may even be privileged and their partner may be more willing to come and see you ride.

Has anyone got any competitions on the way? What are you planning?

What has happened here then. Well we now have our forum up and running. It is called stable talk. I am hoping many of you will enjoy this and meet lots of new people. If there is anything in particular you want to know then ask away. Any advice or any tips to give our friends? We will add in new categories if this is requested.

Any showjumpers or eventers for sale? Now is the great time to promote them as the eventing season is now underway and outdoor showjumping will be starting next month. Prices to advertise start from £10. Also if you have any events to advertise promote them on the site for free under Diary of Event section.

Well Spring is here.

It's the first day of Spring today - only wish that it had felt like it! I am sure I was not the only one this morning up early fighting the heavy frost on the car! Then you arrive to the stables to find that the gate lock has frozen. Gymnast has never been my strongest point so clambering over the gate with hundreds of layers on, really was not an elegant look. My morning was not getting any better why is it this happens when you are always in a rush? Both the field and school were frozen so the poor horse has had to stay in until it thaws out a bit and some kind person will turn her out. Have any of you got any shows your preparing for?

If you have a diary of event why not list it for free on the site - just click on diary of event and follow the instructions. Any bits of tack hanging around that you no longer use? Why not advertise your tack on Horsemart. Looking for a Horsebox? Then search through our 100's of adverts.

The forum should be up and running soon, so please keep checking. We are constantly reviewing the site. All comments are appreciated, it helps us know if there are things people would like to see etc.

Horsemart Antics

Hello to all regular and new users. I thought as the website has been up and running since 1998 it was time to give our users a regular blog comment. Let you know what is going on here and any horse antics that may be of interest.

OK, so who made a special effort yesterday with Valentines day? Last night my stables was like a ghost town. All those that have partners but are normally up there till late riding had made an effort to get home pronto - it would have been the perfect evening to school my horse. With the torrential rain I opted to lunge.

Riding in our school at night I swear you need public liability insurance! You have at least 1 horse being lunged, 3 being schooled and there is always one that is throwing itself around.

So come on there what did everyone do for their partners? Any proposals?

I decided being single this time of year definitely has its benefits. Last year I got it so wrong, my partners birthday was around valentines so I treated him to a nice night out in London with the works. This year my pockets are a bit fuller.

What did other singletons do?
The idea of putting on a good romantic comedy, bottle of wine and microwave meal for one was very tempting - but then it is like any other night in! Being serious, I had a nice bit of steak cooked for me, long soak in the bath, chilled out and phoned a few friends.

So what has been happening here recently? Well we now have a blog. Regular users will notice we have now added new categories:- £1000 and under and also £5000 and over. to make it Advertisers can now upload a video image of their horse, which you'll find increase the views to your advert.
We have also re-launched our stallion site We are pleased with how things are progressing on both sites.

We are in the process of setting up a forum to run on the site.
If you have an event that you would like to advertise this is free to place.

We would love to hear your comments and suggestions.
